United Kingdom: Ex-ministers urge Foreign Office to protect British whistleblower

Caroline Nokes, the former Home Office minister, will Monday seek an urgent debate in Parliament to demand the Foreign Office take immediate action to protect a British whistleblower trapped in Croatia by a “politically motivated” and “vengeful” extradition request.

The move is being backed by former Cabinet ministers David Davis and Andrew Mitchell and former Labour minister Margaret Hodge who want the Foreign Secretary to intervene on behalf of Jonathan Taylor, a whistleblower who exposed multi-million pound bribes by a Monaco-based oil firm.

He was arrested in Croatia three months ago when he arrived for a family holiday after Monaco sought his arrest and extradition for what his lawyers claim are trumped-up allegations of corruption in revenge for his exposing bribery that led to the firm, SBM, paying £350m to settle the claims.
